w00tness to a new thread! And by the way, I'm keeping the Halloween set for a while. >=D
I'm not so sure about the borders on both the sig and avvy, but all-in-all it's good, and if I ever get Gimp, I'll be sure to look at the tut.

Hah. Fifth! I'm special that way. =b

*ehem* Taking a break on my self induced Bleach marathon long enough to comment. Very cute set. bg and extract really showcases the whole kawaiiness of the theme. I agree with angelic though, the red seems a little too bright. Lower the opacity a little maybe? That's about it. I'm off now. Getsuga Tenshou!haha. XD

Wow, your new set looks wonderful Jaggy! Although I'll agree with Angelic Assassin, the border on the avatar seems a bit too bright, but I can understand, trying to go with the same thing as you had on the signature. I really liked the white border you put within the pink border. Very smart. =D

Wow, purdy work so far. Can't wait to see what else you manage to pull out of that imagination of yours. Although I'm sorry I wasn't like the first to post in your new thread, at least I managed to make it in the first 10 or so.

That's SUCH a cute siggy Jagan. The background is quite lovely and the font and colors go very well with the character stock. The red border how ever is a bit too bright. Maybe a pink border may fix the problem. ^^

Oooo! So many comments on my first signature of this thread. Well, I listened to you guys and I made the border lighter and I like it. It looks really great. Thank you for all the comments. I'll reply individually later but thanks again. Here's the improvements. But, I'll still use my amazing Halloween ones for a little.

She uses GIMP, and don't have to repeat what other people say...I think she already got the point. Hence her remastered version.

Well, Jaggy, the remastered version is a lot better, because it's more subtle than opposing than the last version. It's wonderful Jaggy, and you still never cease to amaze me. =)

I missed the closing of old one,now I feel sad >.<
Oh well,I'll be commenting on remastered version
Pink one...haven't seen many pink sigs lately...
Oh well,here's what I have to say:
First of all,improvement of borders makes it better looking,that's for sure,but the first one wasn't that painful at all...sure,contrast of pink and middle-light red is strong,but it's ok...
The whole idea of pink color is good,I love it...
The bg is simple,but beautiful,and characters...
Mmmmmm,soooo cute,just look at those eyes!!
Gotta love it...

New one.^^ It's a nice concept. The combination of different styles of brushes gives a bit of variety to the bg. But I think the colour combination is a little off. Extract doesn't really blend that well with the bg. Change it maybe? Just my opinion.^^'

Sai<33
11-10-2007, 05:26 PM
Thanks for giving a tut. with the first set posted.
You're really good Jagan Eye, you know how to portion a sig so it doesnt look cluttered but it still looks full.

11-10-2007, 07:08 PM
Wow, very nice Jagan. It's very good for an extract like that. I like the choices of brushes that you used to create the effect there. It's amazing what you can do Jagan. Keep it up, and remember we're always here to root you on. ^__^

The Rebel
11-10-2007, 08:15 PM
Lets see, hmm. I agree that the pink border is nicer. Now on to the newest ones. The SBK set is okay, I think the second sig looks better, less overdone. But I have to agree that the second still need something since the color doesn't quite match the BG. Otherwise I look foward to more sigs from ya, and yes I know, I need to get off my lazy end and make some too, lol.

Jagan Eye
11-10-2007, 11:56 PM
I tried a little more with the sig to make it better. What do you think of the improvement?

I like this one much better than the first two. The colors match a lot better. I really like the way that this one turned out - awesome sig! XD

11-11-2007, 10:12 AM
Your sig is so cute. The subtle combination of colors blends well with the vector. It gives out that sweet and cheery feel as you look at it longer. I can't quite decipher the text below your name though.. I guess, you can do better with a more readable font color or style.. All in all, it's nicely made.. good job, keep it up! :)

KuroTan
11-11-2007, 10:16 AM
I agree. This one's better blended. Good job Jagan.^_^

Wow Jagan, your sigs are so awesome! They have clean lines and great colors. They're just so good.
I wish I could do that.

Hamashimura
11-11-2007, 04:40 PM
Hmmm,an update...the first two versions are good,but the character and the bg are not well matching,so yeah...
But I see the improvement on the new one,it's truly better...
Matching colors are already well noticed,and the effects are not overdone,but I dislike one thing - the left corner,the blue one...I think it might look slightly better with some lighter blue color,but it's ok...
Well done..

Jagan Eye
11-16-2007, 02:52 PM
Wow, I've been so busy. Now I'd better get back to my requests. Well, I redid Sobi's sig. What do you think? I like it like this best.

Indeed the last version is the best.

And all your other signatures are looking great as well.
Just don't use the same effects to much.. *points at the signature with the rainbow lighting effect... "I've seen that before" =3*

Keep up the grand work!

KuroTan
11-16-2007, 05:55 PM
Yup. I like this version a lot better. When in doubt stick to one colour. I've got that copyrighted.=b Nice job Jagan, I'm sure she'll love it.^_^

11-17-2007, 03:57 AM
I like the color-ful sig for Sobri a lot more than this last one. >.< It's impressing ME more. I find both of the latest one to be a liiiittle bit too dark, but I just like things to be pretty bright.
Anyway, good job with the background ^^ Keep it up.

mikadzuki
11-17-2007, 07:22 PM
Yeah, the new version is a lot easier on the eyes. I think sticking to a color theme like you recently did added drama to the sig^^ *nod* *nod* Hmm...how about lightening the background a bit though so it'd be a wee easier to see the character and her beautiful braid? and I sorta feel that the bg is a bit too busy--how about slightly downplaying it so that we see the bg but not dwell on it more than the character...^^

Still, nice work! Keep 'em coming! XD

Mhm,the last version is the best indeed...
The whole flow of the sig is very nice,and the one colored sig has a nice feeling to it...definitely better then trying to fill it with two or three different colors,mhm...
I love it,I'm sure Sobby will be very pleased...
There's only one thing that bothers me,the bg looks kinda too technical for character,I think...?
Dunno,perhaps it's just me...
Lol,I don't mind actually,just...having a strange feeling about it...
Oh well,don't worry much about it,since it's good as it is ^_^
Very nice Jaggy,keep up... <3

Maybe blur the character a little, and make her a little darker as well. Because there's a huge difference between her and the background, unless that's what you wanted...
Overall, it's a good signature. =D

Jagan Eye
12-27-2007, 04:07 PM
I see what you mean, so do you think it needs to be any darker?

Personally I think that's a lot better.
I think the blurring did the trick.
Although the text is JUST a (very very) little hard to decipher, nonetheless, the remastered version looks a lot better. Great job Jagan. ^^

Jagan! I can't believe I haven't commented on this thread yet. x333

OK! I like the new set for sobriquet, very pretty =3

For kibasstalker I didn't any of the sigs except the one where the guy wasn't in it x3 I think this is chiefly due to the fact that in the sig, the pic seems to be outlined too hard. I like the overplayed CD version the best XDDD the pic seems to blend in better.

Anyways, you're pretty good Jaggy! Can't wait to see how my sig turns out ~.^

Jagan Eye
12-28-2007, 11:43 AM
Ahw, thanks for commenting. So I took a break on my current style and tried this "clothy style". I know its not that great but I decided to post this anyways because it took me about an hour to do.

@Darkie:
Really? Thanks. I think that KibaStalker likes that version best too.

@Akari:
Thanks for coming here. I'm gonna go to your thread too!

Wow, you're really good at this.
I love the designs on the BG. <3 It gives the set (sig especially) more complexity.
One thing I think it could be improved is probably distinctive coloring. What I mean by that is another BG color perhaps? (My perspective: Her hair and the background is very similar in color.)
And perhaps the text could be improved a little more. :3
But looking at the set as a whole, I love it. It shows a lot of your talent in making these amazing avys and sigs. ;D

Jagan!

It's been so painfully long since we last talked! I completely take the blame. *Sniffle* Forgive meh?

Also, you've improved beyond words can describe! Every is so beautiful. Do you think you can find time to make me a set? Please say so!

Picture: Clickie. (http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/5159/cg03sh8.jpg)
Sig size: 500x257
Sig text: ZakyMaxy (And All That Implies)
Others: Is there anyway, you could sort of use some additional text in the backround, only fade them in a way that they blend in with the backround brushes? If so, use the phrases "I love Envy, I love music, and I hate you."

That is completely optional, though. Any other effects will be left up to you. ^^

Nice background and how Flonne blends in with it.The text is nice and blends as well.
Keep it up^^

Oh my gosh Jaggy! The flonne one is amazing!
I love the color effects, not to mention the effects on the picture.
It gives the siggy a nice metalic feel to it.
Flonne blends in really well. You don't go over board with the blending like me [which is a good thing].
The double text effect is really cool as well. :3

Ah,very nice siggs Jaggy...
Forgive me for not visiting the thread,I wasn't home for more than a month T_T
Freakin' snow <___<;;;
Anywho,I'll comment those you made on the last page...
Here goes:

~ post 79:
Very nice...ava and sig kinda don't match with eachother,but it's not much of a problem...
I really love the sig,the bg is created without many effects,and the character itself is very cute...
Font is very nice,and I just love the words...
Now,for the one tiny problem...
Character and the bg are jumping too high one form another...
Namely,the bg is darker than the character,especially because of the wings,so it makes it extremely...lighter than bg...
I think that it would be flawless if you could make character just a bit darker,but it may be just me...
Anywho,even withou changing it,I find it extremely nice...

~ post 82:
I find this one flawless...the bg effect,and the character well matching with it are the key to success...
The chara and the bg are looking like they are one,for she seems like to be lost in space...
Very nice...
Font is great,as usual,and the borders are well matching the whole sig...
Simply awesome XD

Goodness! It's been centuries since I last talked with you, seen your thread, and commented your great works!

Miss ya lots, Jagan!

Now, your latest one.
It's a really cool sig and the very great effects were used professionally! Nothing less from you, the quality is great, the text placement is good and the text is just the right size.

Somehow the feel to it fits the image and the border is good. It makes the sig look finished and your idea of the green "inside" and black "outside" of the border was good, too.

For my first comment in a long time, there is nothing bad I can say. You've improved way much from your good works to even greater works!

I like this new sig, for Hamashimura. I know just how much he likes roses, I think that the colors are very good I like the background. I think that you are getting much better at doing at avatars. I like the white border that you placed oh the outside, it complement the overall colors. I also enjoy the reflection of the on the moon in the water.

I'll comment on the latest set. I like way all the colours you used in the sig complement each other. Plus the use of the simple font complements the old school feel of the extract used. I think that the edges of the extract are a tad too sharp though and clash with the bg. A little blurring maybe? Still, with or without the blur, that's a brilliantly done set Jagan. I'm sure Hama will like it.^^

Commenting time...

Avy:
Good, solid borders. It matches perfectly well with the siggy. I love the way you horizontally rotated the image and how you inclined it a bit to the right. The rose on the upper-left hand corner was placed perfectly. The text is a little bit too small but fine, nevertheless.

Siggy:
It has a good, calming and watery background. The effects were well-placed and the design was catchy! The dark BG, bright stock and the lovely red roses were perfectly put together! Small, white text might have really been the best choice. The little flower beside the 'Hamashimura' was so cute! The solidifying borders were also well-added.

I like the new set you made just for me, the overall coloring and the brushes you used compliment each other very nicely and the border you chose for the avatar also is very good the the image you chose(I chose) I also like the way it has zoom like effect C4d I think you said it was. Like I said the clear strokes of the brushes you used really show in the signature part of the set. Speaking of the signature part I really like how there is a random, block before my user name I think it is kind of random but I looks well played there. Also the random white spots on the right hand side are also likeable I do know if that happened on purpose or if it cames with the image already. Like I said before I really like the set. Congratulations I think it is very good :D

Avi: The white border is in good contrast to the dark avi. The text was small and fittingly dark but legible and matching to the avi.

Sig: Good black borders on the upper and lower part. The background was really good and putting it together with the stock has made it quite attractive. The text has its own glory and attraction. And I like how it doesn't steal away your attention from the sig to the text. It was really great!

The Sig: KAWAII!!! It's excellent! Considering you didn't use brushes and all. The thin, simple, pink border was a nice finishing touch to the sig. The way you made the image as a BG was very good and I love how you did it and all those effects. Your small, tiny username at the upper-right hand corner was placed well.

Yo.

Interesting concept you have here. While your latest set suffers from what I'm going to call B&W fever [flow and depth] I don't think it detracts from it at all. In fact the more I look at it the more it grows on me. It's rough and noisy but that's probably its strength.

I'd probably burn the spatter on the right as it is as light as your extract. The cloud on the left of his head seems to just merge with his head and I have no remedy but you'll figure it out.

:)

Hey Jaggy, it's been a long time since I've been here.

Your last too signatures seems really rigid on the outlines, were you aiming for that kind of effect? Well, they're not bad, but it is quite awkward in my opinion.

However, your Janeiro signature is REALLY good. I was showing your signature thread to show some of my friends my GFX friends and then I realized you made that and I was thinking, "Ho! That's new! And that's really good!"

Sorry if I haven't been commenting here a lot, but I've been here and there and watching.
So great job Jaggy, and I can't wait to see more. =D

Well, Jaggy, your new set is really interesting. Again, in your wonderful and interesting style which seems to capture my attention personally. Although, I'm starting to think that those really dark spots in the signatures in where you normally put in your text is becoming really predictable and starting to lose it's touch. The text placement in the avatar though is just perfect though.

Can't wait to see more, and later, we should seriously do a collab sig, just to see what would come of it. =D

KuroTan
05-07-2008, 10:15 PM
Nice one. The colours complement each other and there's nothing that detracts from the focus of the sig. My only crit would be that the bg and the characters complement each other a little too well. Maybe make the character stand out a bit more?

@Demoni: Thanks.
@Karuto: Yeah, that makes sense, I couldn't really figure out how to do that. Thanks.

Alright, I tried something a little different and now I need some help improving. In my opinion, its not that great, I don't really like it and I think it needs something more.

As you have said, it kind of turned...blah.
I don't know if it's me, but the extract also looks like it's out of proportion. o__O
Also, the background doesn't seem to fit the general overall color feel.
But then again, it is really, really, really hard to make signatures from a group extract...

But like Unleh said about your Anon signature...
Super smexy.

Oh i loved this signature, its all vector-ish and adorable. Did you make the bunny yourself? and the text is well placed. Whee this vector sig is smexy, very well done! <3

Yay, I loved this sig. The colors are great and blend well together. The animated version is so cute! It overall has a very nice feel, and I like the different pinks and blues in the background. Perfect sig! ^^

07-20-2008, 11:56 AM
@dotz: Thanks <3 But I didn't make the bunny, I found it somewhere else.
@Mira: xD Thanks, I'm happy you think that.

Okay, siggy for Korobi, its kinda different though o__o;
Its supposed to look extra sharp, but I dunno if its a good thing now that I look at it, since I had in mind when I started making it, that I was going to make a tutorial for it but now that I look at it, who would want a tutorial on that...? So I'm just posting this for feedback, KOROBI: DO NOT USE...I will make a better one.

So question for everyone: Should I make a tutorial for this or not, since I can't determine if its good or not...?

OH MY GAWD

The Korobi sig is the total smex. The background is sooo good its goes so well with the extraction. It's like mega-cuteness in a sig.

& I love the craziness of the Dashi sister one. And ouh all the colours.

Perfecto yesh.

I love the new sig - it's so perfectly grungy. Nice colors - I especially like the splash of red among the black and white.

The Korobi sig is awesome! I adore the colors and the extract you chose. The musical notes are perfect for the sig. I love the sigs! ^^

Loving the effects in the foreground but the background seems a lil bare like it needs something else it doesn't seem to flow as well. Maybe try smudging the background just a lil. Nice use of clipping masks tho C:

Hm, to me the font seems really bland. I don't know but that's just me.
But yes, great usage of clipping masks.
There is something missing though, try initiating some C4D usage to bring out the focus a little more.
I really think it's good, but it's missing something.
Oh well, keep it up! =D

@Balance: I had a tough time with the font on this one, couldn't figure out what to do.
@SSDynamite: Ahw, thanks, pink is Balance's favorite color thats why. xD [I'm just kidding]

Alright, new sig for me, made a tutorial, so you should go check it out.

Anywho, I love this signature. Nice clipping masks [?] I think and It ah so adorable. The colours, the text, text placement. all very wonderful jagan. :3 -big huggles for yuu-

Your getting better not worse. :3 Now I must be off -flys away-

Aleyna
07-29-2008, 10:00 PM
I'm liking the mask you used in the background, and the rainbow is a nice touch.
I think the bubbles are cute, but I don't think it was a good idea to put one on the cat.
I think the bubbles work well with the text, but look too sharpened when placed on the cat and in some other certain areas I see too, maybe soften the bubbles?

Jagan Eye

@Taz: XD I use GIMP
@Unleh: I didn't look at it that way until you said that. Haha.
@TVL: Oh, yeah, that is an awkward circle XD

Okay, I need some help with this signature because I don't feel like I'm done. I have to use this extract, but should I try a completely different approach or keep working on this sig? And what should I do?

08-01-2008, 09:32 PM
Some grunge brushes and maybe dark kinda earthy-ish(?) textures might work

Balance
08-01-2008, 09:52 PM
Also, the white border completely destroys the overall feel.
Perhaps go with a very dark, maybe bloody colored border?
Maybe black will work too.

Aleyna
08-01-2008, 10:46 PM
I like how it looks and I get why you choose the color of the text, to go with the border and the image. I think the font should be bigger or a different font. Now What annoys me is, that you used too much of the same effect(that grey brush) in the upper left hand corner area. I'd add some more black effects, and then red on top of the black pushing into the grey alittle(and perhaps into the white and the image) for a nice overlapping effect. I think it'd give a nice pop out effect to make this sig be complete.

Jagan Eye
08-04-2008, 10:45 AM
@IchigoKiss: Grunge, brushes, need to get some.
@Balance: Alright, I'll try the black 1 pix border and see how that turns out
@Twila: I actually just smudged the layer and colored red. But I'm trying some new effects.

Okay, this didn't turn out like it was supposed to but I'm posting it anyways. The background wasn't supposed to be as crowded. ;__;

Korobi
08-04-2008, 12:20 PM
Wow! The background is awesome, but I agree, it looks a bit crowded. The left side draws more attention for me than the extract itself. You could try reflecting the extract horizontally so it faces the other way, but I don't know if that would change anything. How would it look if the extract was colored? I don't really know what you should do. Nice job anyways.

I don't think so, I really like sigggy it looks very different from what you have ever posted before I really like this one. I also really like the text in this one ^^ (are you making a tut for this one?)

Well done on the SOTW thing. Huge huge improvement.^-^ Newest one though is too dark. Lighten it up a bit so we can see the awesome effects you put in. =D

Balance
08-06-2008, 06:56 PM
Hm, it seems like everyone is getting Photoshop now.
That's good, it'll make it easier for me to pin point what you can do to improve.

First things first...
MaruDashi's signature is absolutely cute.
There's nothing that I'd honestly would want to change with it.
Although the text seems a bit harsh...
Oh well.

Serated's signature.
I would follow KuroTan's advice upon lighting.
Also, it seems like a lot of color was lost.
I can understand though.
GIMP and Photoshop are almost two completely different things despite the fact that they are supposed to be "similar" to each other.

Keep practicing with Photoshop, and you will end up very goood.
(Besides, Graphic Designing places tend to use Photoshop anyway, so might as well start now right?)
^^

Jagan Eye
08-06-2008, 10:12 PM
@IchigoKiss: Yeah, I'm having a lot of trouble with text.
@DeeviousDemon: Hm, pale, yeah, I tried to fix that o.o

@Balance: Trying very hard to get over the transition. ;3

Nice concept you have here Jagan <33
I think you are missing a border though, unless I'm losing my vision -squints-
I don't think the extraction goes with the C4D but C4Ds are a pain in the butt.
It is very monotoned and you may need to balance the dark negative space around her with some white text, rather than a faded backgroundish text. (lol I used balance)
But I think your doing extremely well for a second photoshop siggeh.
In no time you will be better than me <3 ;3

And I really love your serated one. If it wasn't for the lighting it would be like so super smexy.

- hope I wasn't harsh or anything -huggle- :3

Maybe change the mode of the lighting layer to Soft Light or something.
And then I can see the pale orange bit. I think it'll go nice if the color matches with the overall . Clip-mask over it =DD

XD OSAKA!! That chick makes me lol. For that sig, try blending her in more, try erasing around her or putting some of the effects.

That collab you Unli did is epic. Great lighting and depth, I think you guys could have added some text behind the extraction or something. But overall that sig is really well done. Oh btw, I've already done my part of the collab x3
